Visited during GABF week 2013. There are 25+ craft beers on tap plus plenty of bottles and cans. It’s big on food but drinking here without eating is just fine. They serve a flight of four beers and even give you a printed note in case your forget which one is which. The staff are super friendly and helpful unlike the Falling Rock up the road. There is plenty to keep any beer drinker happy here.

Decent draft selection, dominated by Colorado micros. Serve flights, which makes for economical tasting. Food was okay.

Located in downtown Denver near Coors field this place has the feel of a shotgun house with the bar in front, a seating area in the middle, and a big room in the back with a massive projection screen. They had a lot of interesting CO stuff on tap and some solid local and regional craft bottles. The staff was friendly and really knowledgable about beer. The food was decent but the prices were very good considering the neighborhood.

(Visited 10/2012 during GABF): Freshcraft is in LoDo on Blake Street not too far from one of the 16th Street shuttle stops.

There is a small patio in front. The interior opens right into the bar area, with standing room on the left and the bar on the right. Beyond that is table seating then a small back bar. A large board behind the bar lists the beers.

Freshcraft features around 20 solid draughts, including brewers like Cigar City, Boulevard, Oskar Blues, SKA and Upslope. Fairly extensive bottle list too.

Service on a packed GABF day was good. The bartenders (both in front and in back) were friendly and knowledgeable about their beers. They were also doing events every day of GABF week (brewery features, rare beer tappings etc).

I did not try any food on my visit.

Overall this is a great beer bar to visit in Denver.

Another long narrow space, like Star Bar, with the bar to the right in the front and booth seating midway and to the back on the right. They have an attentive friendly staff that seemed to perform well with this place packed. I absolutely love the flat screen tap list display that is linked to ratebeer. It is really easy to tell what’s on tap as opposed to Falling Rock. Kudos! They have a nice thorough tap selection with something like 20 ranging from local to far away. It will be fun to visit this place again when it isn’t as crazy busy as this visit and try some of the food.

Popped in here on at least 3 occasions during a Jun ’12 visit to Denver. Solid selection of bottles (100 or so) and taps (30) largely from local CO craft brewers and some from further afield. Servers were very friendly/knowledgeable and gave me a sample or two without having to ask. Kicked their keg of Pliny on the Saturday night and the bartender gave me 2/3rds of a pint gratis - cheers! Only had snacks (hot and cold) from the food menu - these were good, but also basing my food review on what I could see others eating - it looked great especially the burger. It wasn’t too busy on any of my visits so rated a bit lower on ambience as no real buzz inside.
